"An important part of living in the West is the Indian Ocean. This ocean affects our lives in so many ways. During COVID times it has soothed many people as they walk along the beach, feeling the sand squish between their toes, or the water cooling their feet. We wander along the beach picking up flotsam that has landed with the high tides, sometimes weird seaweed with interesting patterns and strange flowers. The numerous rock pools along the coast contain so many minute organisms, in so many colours, patterns and forms. Nature makes palettes and designs that are very hard to improve on."
